USA - English Share this article Share this article Gross margin of 24%, which is expected to increase with further asset integration, product availability, and operational improvements Approximately $6.5 million per year in expected cash cost savings from streamlining operations in Canada and closure of Israeli cultivation farm TORONTO and GLIL YAM, Israel, Aug. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- IM Cannabis Corp . (the "Company", "IM Cannabis", or "IMC") (CSE: IMCC) (NASDAQ: IMCC ), a leading medical and adult-use recreational cannabis company with operations in Israel, Canada, and Germany, provided financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2022. All amounts are reported in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated. Q2 2022 Highlights Gross profit, before fair value adjustments, was $5.6 million. Implemented streamlining and restructuring plan in Canada, with expected cash cost savings of approximately $4 million per year, including the sale of SublimeCulture Inc. ("Sublime"). Completed the closure of the Sde Avraham cultivation farm that Focus Medical Herbs Ltd. ("Focus Medical") owned and operated in Israel, with expected cash cost savings of $2.5 million per year, and further centralized operations of recently acquired assets in the country. Management Commentary "We have accelerated along the path to profitability, with increased revenues, operational streamlining, and a focus on cost reduction," said Oren Shuster, Chief Executive Officer of IMC. "Our primary goal is to continue to increase revenue in each of our core markets to build long term shareholder value. By focusing on sustainable revenue growth, while rigorously pursuing cost and margin efficiencies, we believe we can achieve profitability in the short term." "Our long-term strategy relies on geographic diversification and preparation to target, upon legalization, new adult-use recreational cannabis markets in Germany followed by the rest of Europe. We are preparing to leverage our global cultivation, brand, and commercial expertise to profitably capture substantial market share across Europe. Our strength is in properly positioning our brands in different markets and the introduction of new SKUs to consistently exceed consumer and patient expectations." "Like in Israel, we have embarked on a thorough restructuring of our operations in Canada as part of our global integration efforts and to reduce costs. To that end, we have finalized the sale of Sublime, which together with our streamlining initiatives in Israel, is expected to yield $6.5 million in annual cash savings. We expect the majority of savings to begin to materialize in the third quarter, with full realization in the fourth quarter of this year," concluded Shuster. Operational Highlights To further streamline operations in Israel, Focus Medical completed the closure of its Sde Avraham cultivation farm. The closure of Sde Avraham farm allows the Company to efficiently leverage its fully licensed import-export supply chain and focus on importing premium and ultra-premium products from its Canadian subsidiaries and other leading Canadian suppliers. In Israel, the Company continued to focus on importing premium and ultra-premium indoor-grown dried cannabis from its Canadian licensed cultivation facilities and its world-leading cannabis suppliers and supply partners. The Company successfully introduced its highly popular WAGNERS Canadian brand in Israel and expects to bring to market new medical cannabis products in Q3 and Q4. In Canada, the Company launched numerous new products in response to high market demand for its brands, WAGNERS and Highland Grow, which hold top 3 spots in the premium and ultra-premium segments in Ontario, respectively[i]. At the end of Q2, and in the first weeks of Q3, the WAGNERS pre-roll catalog at the Ontario Cannabis Store ("OCS") grew through the launch of Tiki Rain, Blue Lime Pie, and TRPY SLRP pre-rolls. Two new 3.5g dried flower SKUs – Tiki Rain and Purple Clementine – were also launched in addition to an expansion of the concentrate portfolio with the introduction of soft black hash and 3.5g soap bar hash. Highland Grow added new dried flower SKUs to its OCS portfolio – Gas Tank and Diamond Breath as well as White Lightning pre-rolls. New product rollouts continue with the introduction of new strains including Frost Bite, Leviathan, and Space Jagger. On August 5, 2022, the Company closed the sale of Sublime, which along with additional streamlining measures taken in Canada is expected to generate annual cash cost savings of approximately $4 million per year. All cultivation, genetics, and logistics have been centralized in the Company's facilities in Kitchener, Ontario which has sufficient cultivation capacity to support the streamlining initiative. The Company sold Sublime to a group of purchasers that included the current and former members of the Sublime management team for aggregate proceeds of $100,000 less adjustments. The transaction constituted a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Take-Over Bids and Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). Pursuant to Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, the transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of such instrument. In Germany, May was the strongest sales month to date, and the Company's IMC Hindu Kush strain was the top selling T20 in the market, strengthening Adjupharm GmbH's ("Adjupharm") position as one of the top 10 cannabis companies in Germany. With receipt of the extended EU-GMP license on May 24th, including additional production, testing & release steps, the Company achieved another milestone that supports its strategy of product and brand variety. Adjupharm commenced several new product license applications preparing for the launch of new high-quality and high-THC products in Q4 2022 and Q1 2023. Q2 2022 Financial Results Revenues were $23.8 million in Q2 2022, representing an increase of 114% from Q2 2021. Total dried flower sold for Q2 2022 was 3,210 kilograms at an average selling price of $5.72 per gram, compared to 1,842 kilograms for the same period in 2021 at an average selling price of $3.92 per gram. The increase in revenues is primarily attributed to the increase in the quantity of medical and recreational cannabis products sold, as well as from the higher average selling price per gram the Company realized from its portfolio of premium branded cannabis products in Israel and Canada. Gross profit, before fair value adjustments, was $5.6 million in Q2 2022 compared to $0.6 million in Q2 2021. General and administrative expenses were $11.1 million in Q2 2022 compared to $7.4 million in Q2 2021. The increase in the general and administrative expense is mainly attributable to the growing corporate activities in Israel and Canada following the Company's acquisitions in 2021. Sales and marketing expenses were $5.0 million in Q2 2022 compared to $1.2 million in Q2 2021. The increase in the sales and marketing expenses was due mainly to the Company's increased marketing efforts in Israel, brand launch in Germany, and increased distribution expenses relating to the growth in sales and consolidation of sales and marketing expenses of entities acquired in 2021. Adjusted EBITDA loss was $(4.6) million in Q2 2022 compared to $(5.7) million in Q2 2021. Net loss was $18.98 million in Q2 2022 compared to net loss of $5.01 million in Q2 2021. Included in the net loss was a non-cash charge of $5.4 million, related to restructuring activities in Canada and Israel, along with associated write-downs in tangible and intangible assets, such as other non-cash impairments of $1.5 million in financial expenses and $3.8 million in general and administrative costs. Cash and cash equivalents totaled $5.86 million as at June 30, 2022, compared to $34.05 million as at December 31, 2021. The complete interim condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company and related management's discussion and analysis for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, will be available under the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com .

These statements and any other FOFI included herein have been approved by management of the Company as of the date hereof. Such FOFI are provided for the purposes of presenting information about management's current expectations and goals relating to the benefits of the streamlining and restructuring plan in Canada and Israel, expansion of the Company's product portfolio in Israel, Canada and Germany, existing sales and supply agreements with Focus Medical and Adjupharm, increased sales in Israel through the fulfilment of Focus Medical's existing supply agreements, increased sales from the resumption of product shipments to Adjupharm and new supply agreements for medical cannabis to be received by Adjupharm in Germany, the inclusion of the Israeli pharmacies, Panaxia, MYM and Trichome operations in the Company's financial results following closing of the respective acquisitions, additional product launches by Trichome under the WAGNERS brand and the future business of the Company.

Non-IFRS Measures This press release includes references to "EBITDA", "Adjusted EBITDA" and "Gross Margin", which are non-International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") financial measures. Non-IFRS measures are not recognized measures under IFRS, do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS, and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The Company defines EBITDA as earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA has no direct, comparable IFRS financial measure. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted by removing other non-recurring or noncash items, including the unrealized change in fair value of biological assets, realized fair value adjustments on inventory sold in the period, share-based compensation expenses, depreciation of right-of-use assets, revaluation adjustments of financial assets and liabilities measured on a fair value basis and non-recurring transaction costs included in operating expenses. The Company defines gross margin as the difference between revenue and cost of goods sold divided by revenue (expressed as a percentage), prior to the effect of a fair value adjustment for inventory and biological assets. IMC has used or included these non-IFRS measures solely to provide investors with added insight into IMC's financial performance. Readers are cautioned that such non-IFRS measures may not be appropriate for any other purpose. Non-IFRS measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Three months ended
